The final release in 2014, the Eleanor Roosevelt First Spouse Gold Coin features a portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt. Mrs. Roosevelt was considered the eyes, ears, and feet for her partially paralyzed husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt. She reported directly and in great detail to him regarding her many trips inside and outside the country at his request and at her own behest. The reverse (tails) depicts Mrs. Roosevelt’s right hand lighting a candle. A glowing light rises over a stylized graphic of the earth’s curved horizon. The design symbolizes her life’s work and the global impact of her humanitarian initiatives. This coin is available today!
